I fell off my backdoor step a week ago and am still finding near impossible to walk. As my leg twisted it popped really badly and since then i cannot put my foot down at all. The bruising has all come out around the ankle (which is puffy and yellow) with pins and needles underneath but I don’t know how to progress the healing of it. I’ve so much to do I NEED to get this better. All help greatly received.


  • go to a doctor ask if they would give you anti-inflammatories, pain relievers & a bandage. ask them if it would help it helped me alot.

  • Management of gastrocnemius muscle tears, or tendo-Achilles injuries, which this could also be, depends very much on severity. A minor injury is best managed with rapid gentle mobilisation, a moderate problem might require a plaster slab and a severe one surgical wiring! Go have it checked out.

  • Sounds like you need medical attention. If you’re going to do it yourself, drink LOTS of water and STAY OFF YOUR FEET. And keep your mind positive at all times. I healed my back this way (in record time, too.)
